Best Getaway With Friends: Beacon Pointe Resort

Duluth, Minnesota, keeps on winning awards. And why not? It’s the microbrew capital of Minnesota, the live music hotspot that brought the world Bob Dylan and Trampled By Turtles, and a place where sandy beaches and free parking exist side by side. If you want to be right downtown but far away from the crowds, there’s nothing quite like Beacon Pointe. The open floor plans and custom kitchens are perfect for entertaining, and the Jacuzzis and private balconies 15 steps from the big lake will have…


Early Bird

Hawk Ridge Festivities Are Under Way Hawk Ridge—isn’t that the place you go in October? Well, yes and no. October is prime season when it comes to seeing more birds. But if you’d rather soak in lavish fall colors, revel in the warm sun, and generally have a good time, September rules the roost. Volunteers are on site daily from 9am to 4pm starting September 1, so the party starts as early as you want. We’re just a twelve-minute drive from the natural glories of this ridge. You’ll look out over…

A Movie Vacation

If you like movies, you'll want to be in Duluth between May 28 to June 1. That's when the Duluth Superior Film Festival celebrates half a decade in operation. “The festival started here in Duluth in 2009 as an offshoot of the Sound Unseen Film Festival in Minneapolis,” says festival coordinator Letisha Rice. “In 2012, we became the Duluth Superior Film Festival. We are very excited to be celebrating our 5th anniversary this year.” Last year saw Crispin Glover (of Back to the Future) visiting…


2014 Duluth College Commencement Schedules

It’s been four, five, or perhaps six years, but the day is finally here. Your son or daughter is graduating from college. He or she will walk that stage, pick up a diploma, and celebrate all the hard work, sacrifice, and games of Twister that go into a college education.  “An investment in knowledge,” Benjamin Franklin said, “Pays the best interest. And a comfortable hotel room pays the second best.” To be honest, it’s possible he didn’t actually say the second part of that. But when you’re…

Music Everywhere at Homegrown 2014

“Happy Homegrown,” goes the greeting. It’s usually spoken as cheerily as a “Merry Christmas” might be, and, for Twin Ports music fans, the whole thing has become an annual celebration to rival Yuletide. This year’s Homegrown Music Festival is the 16th one, and, while it may not be as noteworthy number-wise as the 15th was, it’s definitely the biggest roster the weeklong cavalcade of music has ever boasted. 200 acts will be playing this year in Duluth and Superior from April 27 to May 4, at…


Live Music in Duluth

Flannel, beards, boots, and overalls—it’s a typical night out in Duluth, Minnesota. But while fashion might not be our forte, music definitely is. Although we’re kind of in a tug-of-war for getting to claim Bob Dylan (Hibbing has a good claim as well), definitely-from-Duluth bands like Low and Trampled By Turtles have followers across the country. And while Duluth’s music scene leans heavily towards folk and bluegrass, there are other styles as well if you know where to look. Here are three…
